Every person is born into this world with intuition. By paying attention to your inner guidance system, your life will spontaneously begin to flow. The challenge is that from the moment you are born, the world distracts you and conditions you not to pay attention to your inner guidance. Letting go of conditioning by society, friends and family, then re-prioritising your life to honour the wisdom of your inner guidance system, will lead you to exponentially greater levels of health, peace, happiness and success.
On this podcast we continue our chat with Yogic Nun and sacred Jewellery Designer, Sadhvi Shivjyoti about your inner voice. We both agree that to better understand what is true for you, you need to listen to that voice. In this conversation, we deep dive into the nature of your inner guidance system and harness the healing and manifesting powers of sacred malas.

What is Your Inner Guidance System?
Your inner guidance system is best described as a nudge, a gut feeling or a deep-down knowing. You might also call it “an intuitive hit” or “something you know in your heart of hearts”. You can trust this innate wisdom as it is always 100% reliable. Your inner guidance system knows you and has your best interests at heart. More than that, it always leads you back on the path that aligns you to the flow of life.
How Does Your Inner Guidance System Work?
Your inner guidance system or intuition informs you whether your thoughts, words, and actions are in alignment with the flow of life. When you are truly ‘in alignment’, you are on the path towards living the life of your dreams. Your external life situation evolves in synchronicity from one opportunity to the next.
On the other hand, nothing “feels right” when you are ‘out of alignment’. Even though you make logical decisions, you tend to experience disappointment and resistance at every turn. Maybe your life “appears to work” from the outside but you still constantly experience a subtle feeling of discontent and sadness. These negative feelings are actually blessings in disguise and are meant to alert you to the fact that you are off-track in some category of your life.
The truth is the nature of the Universe is not logic, rather it is mystery. Mystery is the only path to follow if you want to lead the Divinely guided magical life. To live in this way, your decisions simply cannot be made by your logical mind. The goal of living intuitively is to overcome your fear of uncertainty, then you are energetically available to embrace the synchronicity of the unknown.
A life lived in mystery is not a threat; it is a life of magic, unlimited possibility and pure love.
Shivjyoti explains there is a voice in each of us that is unburdened by fear and untouched by insecurity. One that is absolute calm and emanates love for oneself and others. She calls it our “true north”.
By following the cues of her inner guidance system, Shivjyoti knew it was time to leave the yogic nun life in an Indian ashram and return to Melbourne, Australia to open her own yoga and meditation studio. She so eloquently explains how the natural interaction with her students was Source (God) calling her to design sacred jewellery that transmutes energetic healing for those who are drawn to it.
What Is the Purpose of the Emotional Scale?
The best way to become “in tune” with your inner guidance system is to begin to pay attention to how you feel. Your emotions indicate whether you are moving toward or away from all that you yearn to experience in your external life.
The emotional scale ranges from despair to bliss (plus every emotion in between). It is important to note that an instantaneous quantum leap from the lowest levels of emotion to the highest levels, is not likely and also not advised. Dramatic changes are difficult to sustain and it is often better to work your way up the scale of emotion by choosing slightly better thoughts that offer a feeling of relief.
For more information, I highly recommend one of my favourite books The Astonishing Power of Your Emotions by Abraham-Hicks. This book gives a full description of your inner guidance system and also incorporates a variety of exercises that will help you put it into practice.
Why Do We Say “Yes” When We Mean “No”?
Your inner guidance is continually tapped into this higher intelligence and it registers in your physical and emotional bodies as a feeling. You can experience these feelings by discerning the inner feeling of “yes” versus the inner feeling of “no”.
In his book Power vs Force, Dr David R. Hawkins discusses this powerful principle of how the physical body can make this distinction. Dr Hawkins uses applied kinesiology (muscle testing) to distinguish “truth versus falsehood” within the intelligence of the body. You can simply practice discerning yes from no in your body by becoming still, then asking “show me a yes”. Pause, notice the feelings in your body, then ask “show me a no”… Both Shivjyoti and I perceive a “yes” in the area of our heart and a “no” in the area of our stomach. Along with the physical sensation, we also experience a simultaneous perception in our minds of either expansion (“strong yes”) or stagnation (“definite no”).
It takes a brave person to align with the concept of “intentional living” to favour their inner guidance system over the external influence of society. May you find the courage to follow your inner guidance and know that you will be led from a life of mediocrity into a life of magic when you do so.
